Pictured: Oscar award replica by artist Plastic Jesus
For those of you who want a quick review of the winners, check below.
As for the lead photo, it’s another controversial piece by L.A.-based street artist Plastic Jesus. The art installation, which was found on the corner of La Brea and Hollywood Blvd., is an 8-foot replica of the Oscar award holding a syringe to its forearm. Some think it’s referencing Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was recently found dead in his New York apartment of a suspected drug overdose.
From a winners standpoint, There weren’t any big surprises. And to be honest, I think even Ellen DeGeneres did fairly well hosting the event, even bringing down Twitter during the show when she Tweeted a star-packed selfie and asked her fans to retweet (more than 2 million people retweeted the photo). Her style of impromptu comedy works well with the format & I have a feeling the Academy would love to invite her back in the future.
